Almost two years to the day since he made his debut as a teenager on Flying Lotus’s Brainfeeder imprint with the ‘Chinese Nü Year’ EP, Iglooghost release his debut album proper, ‘Neō Wax Bloom’.  The new, eleven track project expands on the surreal world created on the EP – we’ll let Iglooghost explain…

“When a pair of giant eyeballs crash into the strange, misty world of Mamu, the mysterious forces that govern nature itself are disrupted.  A life cycle of transforming creatures is thrown off balance, and the odd looking inhabitants of Mamu are forced to adapt to this calamity.  These inhabitants include Yomi – a multicoloured pom-pom monk; Lummo – a wise blind witch training a band of melon coloured babies; and Uso – a sneaky bug thief hidden in a green cloak – as well as many others.  As their respective stories begin to interlock, the mysteries surrounding the giant eyeballs are slowly revealed.”

Sonically, ‘Neo Wax Bloom’ is typically intense – perhaps even more so than ever.  Previous collaborators Mr. Yote and Cuushe also guest on the album, appearing on ‘Infinite Mint’ & ‘Teal Yomi / Olivine’ respectively.  Stream below via Spotify, click here to download via iTunes.
